Strenghts:
Importance!
Easy to handle and lightweight in the air
The flex is straightforward, forgiving in landings, but not too soft so that it is windy
Good edge grip if you squeeze it a bit (though not as sharp as T6 in this area)

Weaknesses:
It feels as fast as it's hot at high speed when it's pressed hard. However, it should be mentioned that I weigh close to 85 kg with an aggressive and powerful ride style. Usually goes on a bit longer and stiffer boards.
Have not qualified any pillows with the board, but I think that this is neither what the board is meant for nor any of its strengths.

Summary:
Gives the board a strong 4th but does not really think it reaches all the way to the top 5. This is a very good board with an incredibly low weight. For "right" riders this is probably one of the hottest boards in the market. However, in my view, it lacks that little extra that justifies the grade 5 and the high price.

Strenghts:
Does just about everything well. Lightweight makes average riders feel instantly like X Games champs.

Weaknesses:
Not ideal for deep powder days or for riders with narrow stances.

Summary:
Thanks to its aluminum and carbon fiber construction and minimal binding hardware, the 5.4 pound Vapor is the lightest board ever from one of the sport's fouding companies. The Vapor will have you contemplating a trip to the half-pipe or try a 360 of the lip: The hyperlight plank is much easier to maneuver when airborne than any standard ride. In the glades, its responsiveness makes for snappy turns; On the bumps, it lets you blast straight down the hill instead of carving around each mogul. Good gear really does take your skills to the next level.
